National Geographic Traveler Magazine to Be Available in Germany from June


HAMBURG (March 5, 2015)—Publisher Gruner + Jahr is bringing the successful magazine National Geographic Traveler to the German market. The travel magazine, which is currently published in 15 countries, will appear in Germany for the first time on June 6, 2015, at the price of 7.50 euros.

Four times per year, readers will be transported to the most wonderful places on our planet and, thanks to the exceptional quality of the photos for which National Geographic is known, they will be able to explore new, exotic worlds. In the magazine’s service section, readers will receive authoritative travel information and advice to help them implement their travel plans. U.S. national parks will be the cover story of the first issue.

National Geographic Traveler will be the second magazine from the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C., that Gruner + Jahr will be publishing in the German-speaking market. Gruner + Jahr already publishes National Geographic magazine.

Alexander Schwerin, CEO of National Geographic Germany, said: “We are delighted that we are continuing to strengthen and build on our successful and trusted partnership with the National Geographic Society. National Geographic Traveler is a globally established magazine that excellently complements our product portfolio in the travel market — a market that is very attractive to us.”

Along with their interest in the most sought-after travel destinations, they are also most interested in luxury cars, the newest technology, stylish design and everything that makes daily life easier and more beautiful.
